The story follows the psychics Addison and Shane, who both work for the mega-corp Triptych, a mysterious company that seems to specialize in almost everything. Both of the main characters are strong and manipulative; it's refreshing to read a story with such complex characters and so much hidden politics at play.

Addison is passionate, stubborn and controlling, oftentimes bitchy, teleporting pet psychic of Triptych's boss, and a fiercely protective mother.

Shane is a part human, part alien supreme martial arts expert and workaholic, who has no friends by design. As a matter of fact, any time he seems to experience strong emotions, he retreats into his emotionless alien side, thus appearing heartless and uncaring.

. . . now imagine the two of them having a baby.

Technically, this is a dark paranormal romance, which is personally not my cup of tea. But this isn't the PWP you'd expect from the genre, this is something slightly more twisted, set on a background of a corporation that is as mystifying as it is sinister.

The beginning is perhaps a little slow, more character-driven than anything else, but the setting is intriguing and it soon develops into a nail-biting tale of corporate intrigue as Addison and Shane build up a tentative trust only to find all of Triptych against them.

Holy cow this book was ...different?...interesting?....relentless?

I loved it.

Quick synopsis: In what I can only guess is an alternate reality to our own, Magic, strong psychic abilities (including telekinesis& teleportation) exist, and off-world travel is no big thing. A giant, murky corporation called The Triptych corporation controls it's employees with an iron fist.

Dr. Shane Myers is a half-human/half alien who has been trying to break his contract with Triptych for 20 years, having been conscripted by them when he was just a teenager. Addison Harris is the Queen-Bee-Diva pet of the Corporation. A top tier psychic with frightening abilities, she and Shane lust for and despise each other. The Corporation has used Addison once before to try to breed her abilities. The result was her daughter Ashlynn. This time they impregnated her and used Shane's sperm to do so. Now Addison is pregnant with Shane's human/alien/psychic child. Despite the Corporation's express wish that she would be nothing but an incubator and that Shane is to never know, Addison psychically bonds with the unborn-baby and, in a moment of malice, she informs Shane he is a father. Surprisingly Shane becomes fiercely possessive of the child. This sets off a 12-year chain of events that involve love, betrayal, evil corporation influence, hate, other lovers, fighting, reconciliation, more love, precocious kids, crazed shape-shifting ex-lovers, revenge, retaliation, and finally triumph and Happily Ever After.


Normally, the constant push-pull tugging of fighting and "I hate you", "No I hate you more" would be romance novel kryptonite for me. I despise that as a plot-propeller. But, crazily, it works in this book.

Shane and Addison are two psychic scientists who work for a company called Triptych. Triptych is a futuristic type conglomerate that owns its employees.

Well Addison is artificially inseminated by Triptych and the donated sperm is Shanes. Although Addison is instructed not the have any contact with Shane she tells Shane about the baby just to be irritating.

As Shane is not 100%human and he's psychic like Addison, he senses the baby and decides he wants to be a daddy and a part of the baby's life.
Okay let the drama begin!

Addison and Shane connect strongly with each other despite their initial dislike of each other. The baby causes them to have an almost addiction to each in every way possible (mentally, psychically,physically, emotionally).

Well no one is happy about that especially not the powers that be at Triptych and they are bad news!

This story is well written and faced paced. And even though the story takes place over years and years (we get to see the kid grow to a teenager during the course of the book) the story doesn't get dull.

Addison and Shane do get their HEA but the road to get there was beyond belief. And thats what made the story so great.

Both Addison and Shane are doctors leading research teams inside the powerful, Triptych Corporation. Both are extremely powerful psychics. They don't like each other much and Addison is livid when she discovers that the embryo implanted in her by Triptych is her egg fertilized by Shane's sperm in a lab. Management apparently want to see what their two most gifted psychics might produce for offspring. Expecting a baby together brings Addison and Shane closer, but just as they are standing on the threshold of love, Triptych steps in and breaks them apart with deceptions.

Years pass. Addison and Shane waffle between insatiable attraction to each other and hatred. The whole time, the mystery of Tripych and its creepy management fill the story with intrigue. While there is some serious steamy sex, this is also the story about a family. Shane, Addison and their kids have very realistic relationships. The kids are close since there are few other children in Triptych, and both want to see Shane & Addison work things out. Both Addison and Shane are good parents who do their best by their kids. I loved how human the characters were.

There were a few areas in this story which could have benefited some further explanation. Both of my major issues involved world building. First, this all takes place with a corporation. I gather they do scientific and psychic research, but the details are sketchy. What kind of company has the employees live on sight and dictates every aspect of their personal lives, including who they can sleep with and when and with whom they can have children? The other thing is regarding the aliens. We know Shane is half-alien and there are a few full aliens in the story, but there is not a lot of explanation about the aliens. Where did they come from?
